12 icons of the lovely Shaak Ti!

It is possible that Shaak Ti's name is based on the similarly spelled Shakti, the female Hindu deity of strength. The Sanskrit word Shakti also means 'strength', or 'energy.'Collapse )

On another note, is anyone aware of a Clone Wars-era forum-based roleplaying game that allows OCs? I've been searching for ages, as a character has woken up inside my head. D:

One of the things that sucks about being in New Zealand is that you get TV later than everyone else. For example, in the case of Prison Break, "First Down" (2x04) just aired here on Wednesday. But I have been watching (and squeeing at) clips from "Chicago" (2x17) on YouTube. Sigh.

Anyway, a set of icons based on this set of promo images for season two, taken from Prison Break | Media. Plus three bonus icons. :D

And in addition, two Michael/Sara wallpapers. Well, two variations of the same wallpaper, I should say.

Icons!Collapse )

No icons today, just two sets of brushes. :D

Right-click and save target as, people! And comment and credit me.

Also, I'd like to announce that Stained Soul is now open. All my GIMP resources (will eventually) be in one place. :D

And if you have any suggestions as what resources to make next, let me know.

[10] Various clones

In many ways, the Star Wars prequel trilogy is very much like LOTR: you get to play Spot The Kiwi. Temuera Morrison (Jango Fett andthe clones) is a wonderful actor, and definitely one reason why I like the clones so much. Even though this is the animated series, the clones need more love.

And so does Temuera Morrison. If you can, see One Were Warriors. It's a draining ride, but a very good movie. It also happens to star Rena Owen, who was Taun We in AOTC and Nee Alavar in ROTS. Shame he didn't do voice work for CW, although he did do it for games. /random tangent.

Why Yes, Temuera Is Hot!Collapse )

Major ♥ for Gargoyles, and the major funny lines that they had over the two seasons. And to commemorate, a few text icons of those quotes.

A simple way to 'outline' your text in a subtle way that still makes the text stand out.

1) Insert your text. TIP: Use an off-white/light grey colour instead of stark white. And anti-alias it.
2) Copy the text layer, so that you have two copies of the same text.
3) Change the colour of the bottom layer to black.
4) Go to Layer -> Transform -> Offset (or hit shift + control + O)
5) Offset the black text layer by one for both X and Y.
6) Blur the layer, by going to: Filter -> Blur -> Blur Repeat if needed.

And that's it! Have a try yourself, and let me know how it goes!

[8] Aayla Secura Icons
[7] Aayla Secura/Kit Fisto Icons, plus
[4] varations on one AS/KF icon

It Was My PleasureCollapse )

I finally got to watch ROTS the other day (after a huge marathon of the original trilogy), and towards the end I found myself captivated by the brief appearance of a 'blue Jedi'. Although I had liked the movies, I had never really found myself obsessing over them. But when I saw Aayla Secura, I felt I had to learn about her, and thus found myself searching for Extended Universe material. And I promptly fell in love with the pairing of Aayla Secura and Kit Fisto. ♥
